Weekend Races at Sunny Isle Enjoy Smooth Seas

This year's race to Bimini was held in some of the calmest water ever seen by participants. Run as part of the Sunny Isles race/challenge/poker run event this past weekend, offshore contestants raced the clock from Haulover Inlet to Bimini and back -- a total distance of 100 miles. In it's class, Aqua-Mania set a new record with an incredible time of 43 minutes and 43 seconds.

Gino Gargiulo's beautiful Mercedes cat was running super-strong as well, but had some bad luck just nearing the end of his run with a break-down. As expected, there was a lot of fun had by all and a lot of partying every night, too; the auction on Saturday raised a lot of money for Take Stock in Children. As for the race run off the beach on Sunday, the results were as follows:

SUPER STOCK
1) Miccossukee
2) Stihl
3) Fluid Sealing Products

TURBINE
1) Aqua Mania
2) Geico

CAT LITE
1) Amsoil
2) All Jacked Up

SUPER VEE
1) Miccossukee

The race course was shortened this year with the south turns 2 & 3 moved to just north of Haulover beach instead of at the Haulover inlet. The pits at the Haulover Marina were closed to the public due to "something" happening there on Saturday. Only were about 5 boats and did like 5 laps. Looked like the Geico and Stihl boats were the best from shore. Helicopters chasing the boats looked neat. Lasted about 15 mins.
